What are the stories that shape your perception of the world and yourself? Who determines them, and how can we create alternative narratives within our communities to mobilize change? Josèfa Ntjam’s exhibition Futuristic Ancestry: Warping Matter and Space-time(s), which will be on display at Fotografiska Berlin from June 14th to October 6th, 2024, seeks to deconstruct these dominant narratives. Ntjam explores collective histories, as well as her own memories and personal and family archives, through images of African mythologies, ancestral rituals, Cameroonian independence movements, and freedom fighters such as the Black Panthers–highlighting the transformative power of community to create new realities.
